Belgrade’s first home-made Italian pasta place, Le Nonne Pasta Fresca, opened in Vračar, but soon enough, they opened the doors of another shop in Dorćol (No. 13, Žorža Klemansoa street), which could be proof that this city was craving for something like this: a tiny, pastel-colored corner that won’t disappoint you with its offer. Sure, there are a lot of take-away pasta places, but here you can buy fresh pasta made from high-quality dough with non-GMO eggs and without additives; also, it comes in quite a few shapes. My favorite are Paccheri – a wide, soft, smooth type of pasta with a very large tube.
If I am really hungry, or in a hurry, I choose one of a few daily sauces that I can mix with pasta on the spot (pomodoro, tartufo, bolognese…). You can also order straight-out-of-the-oven lasagna with meat or vegetables, or varieties of ravioli. As the two lady-owners say, they built this place around their love for carefully chosen products and Italian cuisine, so other than fresh pasta, here you can buy cheese, aceto balsamico, tomato puree, olive oil, wine and other well-known delicacies.
Le Nonne Pasta Fresca is open every day of the week, and there’s fresh pasta made each morning. If you were looking for something to fulfill your Mediterranean food desires, this might be the place to start.
